As artists, working through the instinct to please in an effort to stay connected to the realization of an authentic idea can be a challenge. Ideas of intimacy and evolving group dynamics converge as we search for a sense of authenticity and meaning. Participants in “No Need to Please” explore and dialogue though concepts of intimacy within Liberti’s choreographic work “don’t kiss” as an entry point. Leaning into seemingly provocative content, how can creatives stay truthful, mindful and receptive to social cues while making the work they desire. 

This session will be facilitated by Paige Krause.

After a career as a dancer in Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Denmark, Fabio initiates his career as a choreographer making works for Danish Dance Theatre (Denmark), SkånesDansteater (Sweden), Norrdans (Sweden), MIR Dance Company Gelsenkirchen (Germany), Dark Circles Contemporary Dance (Texas), Mainfranken Theater Würzburg (Germany), LandesbühnenSachsen (Germany), EDGE Dance Company (England).

Acadiana Center for the Arts

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
